Mfr Part #: K100-3210-81-25
Mellanox LinkX UltraVOA uses silicon photonics to deliver reliable solid-state current controlled optical attenuation enabling ultra-fast control of signal levels in optical networks. The Variable Optical Attenuator (VOA) consists of a reliable silicon p-i-n diode structure built across a silicon optical waveguide. As current is applied through the diodes, the free carriers in the waveguide absorb photons, creating a current-controlled variable attenuation. Because the physical effect is based on electronic control, the response time of the VOA is fast. This VOA is well suited to the most demanding applications in metro and long-haul transmission applications. The high speed of these VOAs makes them particularly useful for optical transient suppression and analog signal modulation applications.
